Pierre Governor football team claimed the 2015 Eastern South Dakota Conference
football title by way of defeating the Mitchell Kernels on Friday night by a
score of 29-21.
Governors scored their biggest lead of the night when they drove 99 yards &
running back Isaiah Watson punched it in from four yards out to go up 22-7 at
the end of the third quarter. Mitchell responded in the fourth quarter when
Kanin Nelson rushed for one of his three touchdowns on the night to pull the
Kernels within seven.
momentum quickly faded when Seth Neal picked up the football on a botched
running play & scored from 33 yards out. Mitchell scored one more touchdown
late in the fourth but the Governors ran out the remaining time. Pierre improves to
6-2 on the season.
